    I can't help you too much with low sodium, but at most halfway-decent restaurants, the cooks would be willing to adjust their recipes accordingly, whenever possible.

    One of my favorite Thai restaurants in Orlando is Thai Singha in the sprawling Waterford Lakes shopping center on Alafaya, just south of Colonial (about 5-10 minutes south of UCF).

    There are no high-end steakhouses around UCF, but your husband can definitely get a steak at nearby Logan's Roadhouse on University. I prefer their ribs and burgers, though.

    If you want to splurge on the best steakhouse in town (and don't mind driving about half an hour in decent traffic), Del Frisco's is awesome:

    Back in the UCF area, I love the giant pizza slices at Lazy Moon, a divey pizzeria right across the street from UCF at University and Alafaya:

    In the same strip mall, you have Mama Millie's Jamaican Cafe, which is good:

    And Jeremiah's Italian Ice, which everyone loves:
